Scope and Content
325 files on individual farm loans and a dozen on collective loans made to Jewish-Canadian farmers. Opened between 1907 and 1948, the files are numbered chronologically by their date of opening. some include a curriculum vitae. Few still include the 3 parts of which they were originally comprised, that is: 2 transaction parts, one created by the Central Office of ICA Canada, the other by its Western Office, and a security part. Generally, the files now comprise either the first 2 parts, or the third. The oldest files also contain a part created by JAIAS of New York, when the individuals concerned received, through this agency, a farm loan from ICA, before 1907. About 600 files are missing from this sub-series. The total number of files created was 924
